Covers the period 1649-1689. Political and religious revolutions racked Britain after Charles I was executed in 1649. Britain was a joyless, kingless republic led by Oliver Cromwell, who saw Britain as a new Jerusalem and sought to discover God's destiny for it. His rule became so unpopular that for many it was a relief when the monarchy was restored after his death, but Cromwell was also a man of vision who brought about significant reforms.
